It is the aspiration of Restoration Life Coach and Counseling Services to respect and extend God’s unconditional love to everyone regardless of any doctrinal differences.
Statement of Faith
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.
There is One God, eternally existent in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right Hand of the Father.
Salvation is only by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died on the cross for our sins.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to believers for equipping and personal transformation, and is exemplified through the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the glorious return of Jesus Christ and the rapture of His Church, the bride who has made herself ready.
Restoration Life Coach & Counseling Services
In 2001, Restoration Groups, a support groups ministry, was launched by Dr. Helena Mariades at Calvary Assembly (Winter Park, Florida). During that year, she also founded Restoration Counseling Ministries in Winter Park, Florida with two missions: to offer the healing benefits of caring, confidential and affordable Christian counseling, and to assist those facing crises in the restoration of their lives by drawing closer to Christ. Counseling was offered to Central Florida residents and to residents of the local Union Rescue Mission.
In 2007, Dr. Helena Mariades and her husband, Rev. Peter Mariades Th.D., moved to the east coast of Florida where Restoration Counseling Ministries was reestablished. To continue counseling her valued counselees in Central Florida, Dr. Helena incorporated Skype video counseling, which quickly extended her services to others in many cities throughout the United States.
In 2014, Dr. Helena became certified as a Christian life coach to better serve her counselees, and changed the name of her counseling practice to Restoration Life Coach & Counseling Services.
Dr. Helena Mariades
Dr. Helena Mariades was educated at Capital Bible College (Counseling Diploma), Florida Christian University (BA Pastoral Counseling, MA Christian Psychology, President’s Award for Achievement), and Florida Theological Seminary (Theology PhD).
Dr. Helena Mariades has been a Member of the American Association of Christian Counselors since 2002, and is endorsed by the AACC International Board of Christian Counselors as a Board Certified Biblical Counselor. She is ordained with Harvesters Christian Fellowship, a non-denominational Christian organization.
Dr. Helena believes that life coaching and counseling for any reason should address the whole person as created by God. For example, a depressed individual can be affected in his or her body with fatigue and illnesses, soul (will, heart and mind) with negative thoughts and feelings, and spirit with doubts about God. Recognizing and addressing these issues ensures long-term positive results.
Dr. Helena’s services are especially unique in that she offers biblical and prayer-based life coaching and counseling. In a non-judgmental environment, she has assisted many counselees in overcoming emotional wounds and trauma, marriage and relationship problems, depression, addictions, career changes, stress and anxiety, grieving losses, codependency, abusive relationships and behaviors, overeating, divorce recovery and many other life challenges.
